About The Owner

Steve and I (Heather) have lived in Duluth for the past 20 and 15 years respectively. We call it home now and have a tough time seeing ourselves living elsewhere. Lake Superior has a draw and we've been mesmerized since moving here. We both love the water and spend a significant amount of our free time surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing and fishing. Both of us have caught a muskie out of our canoe a stone's throw away from our house on Minnesota Point. We've also been able to surf every month of the year! Although I'd recommend a wet suit Fall/Winter/Spring. We love this area and always look forward to coming home when we've gone on vacation.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2001

Why The Owner chose Park Point

Actually the vacation home is Steve's first home. He spent much of his free time repairing/refinishing. It is furnished with antiques handed down in our family that Steve refinished. We were unable to part with it when we moved to our new home less than a mile away so we turned it into a vacation rental home in 2010.

What makes this cottage unique

You'll have direct access to the largest freshwater lake in the WORLD (Lake Baikal in Russia is largest by volume, Lake Superior is largest by surface area)!

You are less than one mile away for the farthest inland port in the world.

You are less than one mile away from one of the largest lift bridges in the United States. There you can view Ocean and Great Lake ships from less than 100 feet as they enter and leave the port.

Minnesota Point is surrounded by water and the Aerial Lift Bridge is the only point of access by land. You are essentially on a island!

Steve lived in this house for several years and knows you have great neighbors!

If you want shopping, coffee, antiques they are less than 1 mile down the road over the Aerial Lift Bridge. You can also make the walk on sandy beach.

A great home for our family vacation. Well maintained and clean, this home has a lot of charm. It is close to canal park and on the beach, can't beat the location! Heather is very responsive and great to work with.

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Duluth as a family trip. We had 4 adults and 2 kids, age 3 and 5. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The beach is just a 3 minute walk from the front door, up the sandbar hill and there's the lake! Heather is very receptive to emails and helpful if needed. Easy access to downtown Duluth and all the shopping/dining/sites in canal park. Nice patio on the roof. Neighbors are really nice as well. We had a wonderful time in this home and highly recommend it!

Lovely way to spend Memorial Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We chose Minnesota Point Beach House 3 as our home base for a weekend centered around a family wedding. We instantly felt at ease upon our arrival. My 8-year old promptly proclaimed the bedroom with the twin bed, desk, and Harry Potter books as "My Room" in large letters on the room's wall-sized chalkboard. The kitchen was well-appointed. We made good use of it and the BBQ to make our meals--which we enjoyed eating on the various sunny decks and patio outside. The adults in our group also enjoyed playing games in the evening at the large dining table inside while our children happily watched the provided movies and played foosball and ping pong. We really lucked out with the weather as well. While Lake Superior has only been warm enough for me to swim in it once in the past three decades, it was once again warm enough for us to swim in over Memorial Day Weekend. We were also treated to a heat lightning storm late Sunday evening which was simply awesome to watch looking out over the lake from the upstairs bedroom. We truly enjoyed our stay at this special place.

Absolutely loved this house! It was so welcoming and comfortable! The best time with family where we could just relax ,really visit, roll dice, eat together in the large dining room, walk the beach, shop. Better than a hotel! We had the best time! We were sad to leave here.
